I would love to come, but Germany is to far away - BUT:
I am developing a wordpress plugin for microformats atm in cooperation
with the R&D department of the company I am working for.
so I am absoluty interested in knowing what's going on there and with
which ideas you'll come up there?!
our plugin (maybe called "MicroGator") will be able to aggregate
hCards(+XFN), hCalendars, xFolk and hReviews in the sidebar or as a
single page. (you can set a few parameters for display, updating,
maybe filters and so on)
You just have to specify the URL's of your microformats sources and
you can check for each URL if you wanna aggragate all or only specific
we're thinking about to support the URI microformat to make our parser
more powerfull - but the specification of URI support is atm maybay
not far enough ;)
So - it would be wonderfull, if you can have in mind, that somebody
out there in germany is doing something in this direction allready :))
Of course it will be open source and for free! As soon it makes sense,
we will start publishing informations about it.
So thanks! I am a little bit envious, that I can't be there :(
